This week, the Eugene Register-Guard published an article featuring OM’s temporary Cottage Grove Clinic. The grin on Sue’s face reflects the excitement we all feel at pioneering another clinic to help our neighbors just south of us. We are grateful to both the Register-Guard for helping us spread the news. http://www.registerguard.com/rg/news/local/30315793-75/medical-clinic-health-occupy-care.html.csp
Occupy Medical also enjoyed marching in the Eugene Celebration Parade Saturday, August 24, 2013. The Register-Guard covered this event as well. Look for the photo of our favorite cowgirl driving the famous white and red mobile clinic through downtown Eugene. http://www.registerguard.com/rg/news/local/30360181-75/eugene-parade-celebration-winner-street.html.csp#slideshow
We are showcasing our clinic with the good people in Cottage Grove on August 25! South Lane Mental Health is hosting this event with the hope that it will encourage practitioners in the area to assemble a similar service. We are putting this together as a full, working clinic and we will be seeing patients. All healthcare practitioners are invited to observe the process to get an idea of the viability of a free service in their area.
The Eugene Celebration is preventing us from practicing in our usual spot but look for us back in the Park Blocks on 8th and Oak the following Sunday. Thank you Lane County Mental Health for opening your space so that we can continue to offer healthcare for all!
Tetanus, diphtheria, and whooping cough. Oh my! This Sunday is the last time to take advantage of our grant with Lane County Public Health for free Tdap vaccines. Meet us at the Park Blocks at 8th and Oak between 1-3pm for your update. Come at 1pm to sign up.
